Gosh, it’s my turn again and I really can’t believe that we are already a week old. We really do hope that you are enjoying It’s a creative world as much as we are.
Anyhoo, today I am going to share one of my décor ideas. I used Jenni Bowlin’s vintage red line so I could get away with using it as a Father’s Day pressie as well. I also have details of a fantastic prize draw and an amazing special offer for you all. First, to the project.
I love having lots of pictures and memories around the house. But, I don’t always want to use photo frames and like to use things that are a bit different. I’ve seen wooden cubes you can buy to decorate but decided to use an offcut of wood to make mine. A bit of economy here and there pleases Graham and means more pennies for pretties. We had some wood left over from a DIY project but you could easily pick some up at your local timber merchants. This is also a handy project for using up those bits of stash that we all have kicking around the house.
I lightly sanded the cube and then used double sided tape to stick my papers and photos on. I then sanded the edges of the paper with a nail file and whizzed some brown ink over to muddy them up a bit.
The bird and the papers are from Jenni Bowlin, the buttons are Melissa Frances and the rub on is Basic Grey. I’m so happy that the Jenni Bowlin stuff is now available over here and I can fill my basket at A Trip Down Memory Lane.
Now onto the big news of the day and we have yet another prize draw for you. Yes, all of the lovely people who leave comments over the weekend will go into a draw to win a kit from Scrapbook Central.
